Jacksonville Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapies
Trips to the hospital become more frequent as people get older. As a matter of fact, about 13.8 million persons aged 65 and older were discharged from short hospital stays in 2009-2010. Given the choice, no one likes to stay in the hospital any longer than necessary. In fact, most seniors say they can rest better and recover more quickly at home in their own beds with the support of their family. We can provide a collaborative team of nurses and therapists who are formally trained to perform a variety of in-home therapeutic services.
Patients who have experienced an injury, have difficulty walking, had hip or knee replacement surgery, struggle with joint pain, had a stroke, or are recovering from a debilitating illness or heart attack, may be a good candidates for at-home therapies. All At Home therapists help patients and their families perform a variety of routines designed to improve functionality allowing the patient to continually increase their level of independence. In addition, members of our team will furnish the patient education needed for the use of adaptive equipment, such as crutches, walkers, lifts and wheelchairs.
Speech Therapy can help individuals who suffer from debilitating disease, such as Alzheimer's or those who have suffered a stroke and must deal with cognitive issues or other impairments. Prescribed therapeutic activities are useful in restoring your loved one's quality of life by helping them regain his or her ability to eat, swallow, and select words as well as to accurately express their wants, needs, and ideas. Keeping an active social life and preventing unnecessary isolation are key factors in your family member's recovery and long-term emotional health.
